This rare lady's vanity, in ebonized teakwood, holds its original and complete dressing set in a stamped Art Deco motif. It includes two hairbrushes, a comb, a hand mirror, a powder box, a cigarette case, three utility boxes, two photograph frames, a mirrored tray, and a hip flask, all in silver, and a bohemian glass perfume bottle and box with original maker's stickers.

This piece would have once belonged to a distinguished Indian lady and was probably used as a travelling dresser during long cruise-liner voyages to Europe, extended stays at summer homes in the hills, and in luxury tents during the shikar or hunting season.

Upholstered seat, towel rail and lighted mirror.
Fitted for electricity
